  1. Again!!! back in 1995 Notro had bad food killing two puppies..that I know of ….almost killing my parents puppy and brothers puppy .WOW. Another reason why I’m never going to feed my pets this junk… Raw food for my girl ,it’s the only way I know that what she is getting is the best and safe .

  2. I had my dogs on Nutro before but they started loosing all their fur and scratching relentlessly. They would throw up constantly refused to eat. Poor things, I stopped feeding them Nutro and everything cleared up and they recovered. I truly believe this is a dangerous brand of food!!! Stay far away from it!

  3. I’ve fed my dogs Nutro max mini chunk dog food for years without any issues. I have bought them some of the Nutro treats but here lately I just give mine mini carrots or other raw fruits an veggies for treats. I have bought some of the Science diet treats but they are so expensive I don’t buy them often. I use some of the Nutro entrees as well and mix it in with the dry food. You are not gonna find a miracle pet food out there that hasn’t has some sort of recall or something negative said about it. I make home made dog food sometimes too out of cooked chicken, rice an veggies. It’s no different than our food supply, the FDA allows bad stuff in our food too, like rat droppings an urine in the factories, you ever wonder why there’s so much cancer these day? You just have to go with what you feel is best, if your pet begins to get sick, slowly switch to something else. I know Purina Beneful has been in big law suits lately over dogs dying from it or so they say?? I still know people who buy Beneful an feed it to their dogs an they are just fine. Some dogs are more sensitive than others, you just have to find what works.

  4. Really people… Have you RESEARCHED what is in your dogs/ pets food? Nothing but scraps and fillers. Corn, carrots, peas are OK for us but not your pet. Too much they
    get starch poisoning imbalance. I’ll feed my dogs “carrots” when they start digging them up in the garden and grow molars!
    They are carnivores! Look in their mouth! Those are canine teeth. They rip, tear MEAT, then they swallow.
    So called “Meat” found in pet food is disgusting (it may even contain the remains of euthanized animals!).
    I make my dogs food, ground beef, hard boiled eggs and white rice. If I wouldn’t eat it, they don’t !
